In the Spotlight: Dollface_24

29.10.10

Today's featured blogger has a beautiful blog with a bit of everything in it.  NOTDs, shopping hauls, Halloween outfits, hairstyles, perfume....you name it, the lovely Dollface has probably blogged about it.  And then there's the added extras such as Twitter updates, multiple awards, Formspring and a list of all the blogs she loves.  Now I don't know about you, but having a nosy at the blogs my beloved bloggers read themselves is one of my favourite pastimes....and a bigger subscription list can only be a good thing, right?!  In actual fact, Dollface holds a special place in my affections as perhaps one of the first bloggers to really welcome me to the fold.  Don't get me wrong, I befriended a number of fledging bloggers in a sort of team-bonding way as we all struggled to find our footing together, but Dollface already had a successful blog and chose to help me out massively when I launched my bracelets by Tweeting about it.  We all know what a lovely feeling of sisterhood blogging provides, and Dollface is definitely a blogger who is more than happy to help those just starting out.

So I've said her name enough in that opening paragraph, you should all realise by now that today's In the Spotlight is....
Dollface of Dollface_24

1. Sum yourself up in 5 words….
Bubbly, caring, talkative, sensitive and a worrier!!

2. What’s your blog all about?
God my blog is about anything that tickles my fancy really. Primarily anything to do with make up, skincare, fashion and clothes because I am interested in all those areas. I've recently asked my followers what they want to see more of so that I can improve and make my blog as enjoyable to read as it is to write!

3. Who or what inspired you to start blogging?
I had been watching a lot of youtube videos particularly gurus like lollipop26 and then came across the blogging community. In particular I would say Amy aka Dazzledust25 inspired me to actually start blogging. I love Amy's blog, she's very knowledgeable, she comes across really funny and friendly. This Irish gal doing her thing inspired me to give it a go, to have my little space online where I can put my thoughts and opinions out there.
I've also got the worst memory ever and my blog reminds me of the products that I didn't really like so then I don't waste money and buy them again!!

4. What do you do for a living?
I studied Marketing in college and have done a Digital Marketing course so that is what I would like to be doing. At the moment I'm finding it hard to get a job in the area so I'm doing some temporary admin work until things improve.

5.  Which would you say you prefer….fashion or make up?
Oh god this is a really tough question. Make up probably but I love fashion and clothes so much too!!

6. What’s the most expensive item in your wardrobe?
I bought a Karen Millen dress for my graduation ball, I saw it in the window and I just had to have it. It was a charcoal grey colour with lots of beading detail Unfortunately I haven't worn it since either. But I do adore it!

7. Are there any beauty products that you swear by?
To be honest I have a very modest make up collection in comparison to others. I've found plenty of products that I like (UD Naked Palette, St Moritz and Max Factor False Lash effect come to mind) but I don't know if I swear by them, I think there is so many products out there that I still have to try before I can swear by anything!!


8. What’s your favourite style of make up to do?
I'm a neutrals girl. By day I like to keep things simple often only using one or two eyeshadow shades and by night I love a smoky eye both followed with lots of eyeliner and mascara!! I've recently got into lipstick so I'm enjoying trying that out too.

9. Which is your favourite of your recent purchases?
Has to be my Urban Decay Naked Palette which I keep harping on about, but seriously worth the monies!

10. Which is your favourite high street store?
I'm loving H&M at the moment, they have some really nice A/W items in. Love Zara too!

11. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I tend to worry a lot about things that often are out of my control, so maybe to not worry and stress so much (it's giving me fierce frown lines too!!!)

12. You always seem so upbeat. What keeps you happy?
Thank you so much, that actually means a lot more to me than you realise. I always try to remember that there is always going to be someone better off and worse off than me.
I have a healthy family, a fabulous boyfriend and amazing friends so really I have nothing to be unhappy about!

13. Which blogs do you enjoy reading?
There's so many but I have a few mentioned in the sidebar in my blog, they are the ones I always make sure to check.

14. What can we look forward to on Dollface_24?
More of the same really review, FOTDs, OOTDs whatever inspires me to get writing really. I want to get a better camera and I need to hold a giveaway to thank all my followers too so I need to get cracking on organising that!

15. Do you have any tips on how to make a successful blog?
I would say just be yourself, it's your space so write about whatever you enjoy and have fun.

So there we have it, and on reading that last answer I have to say it's really ringing true with me.  Sometimes it's hard trying to think up original concepts or quirky twists to make A Perfect Lie stand out from the crowd and perhaps I needn't put that much pressure on things.  I'll just try and remember that it's "my space" in future and to have fun with it!

Thank you to Dollface for taking part and for always being so friendly and supportive.  So make sure you keep her happy by visiting her blog and clicking "Follow"!  She also found out yesterday that her contract at work has been extended until January so go help her celebrate by having a read of her blog :)

How many of you were already followers?
